    ••• Vesper Bar at Cosmopolitan.
    They specialize in the classic cocktails and feature a mixology program with some talented people doing the shaking and stirring but their list of beers and wines will keep those people in your group satisfied while you journey back in time to an era when a good stiff drink was vital to a good time.

    Social Bar at Palms Hotel

    Social at the Palms Las Vegas
    This casino bar is at the center of the casino and the center of all the action at the Palms. The cocktails are stiff and their menu is as good as any on the strip.

    The Pub at Monte Carlo

    Need a beer? I could send you to the pub at Monte Carlo because they have a huge beer list and if you want to watch a game it's the place to do both. Happy Hour specials will get you fed and the endless taps will keep you from getting dehydrated.

    Sit at the bar and talk to the bartenders and you'll likely get the story behind the drink or some fascinating fact about the spirit. These are guys are god and their ability to make a classic cocktail is precisely why you'll step into Bellagio to have a drink.

    ••• Beer Flight at Public House Las Vegas.
    Public House at Venetian Las Vegas will get you great beer, a cicerone to tell you about the beer and some poutine to have while you compare craft brews. This is the one Las Vegas bar you should be at if you truly love beer. The food is good but it can get pricey and whatever you do don't have the burger because at $18 it is not one of the best deals in the place. There are so many other great things on the menu that I'm sure you'll find something to go with your fabulous beer.

    La Cave at Wynn

    ••• Chorizo, Italian, Andouille Sausage FlatBread at La Cave.
    If you need a glass of wine and maybe a few small plates to keep you occupied you'll hit La Cave at Wynn. Try to get a seat out on the deck that overlooks the pool and try to engage someone in conversation. I would warn to stay away from geeking out on wine speak as this is more of a casual wine drinkers spot. They do have a bar area but I'm more of the mingling type.

    Minus 5 at Mandalay Place at Mandalay Bay Las Vegas

    Get yourself a frozen drink, cozy up with the large parka and gloves and experience an ice bar in Las Vegas. All ice, all around you. You won't stay here all night but it is one of those things you have to try once.

    I'm a fan of the Eastside Lounge because I enjoy a good drink and I love the idea of sitting around and taking far too long drinking it and people watching. The Eastside Lounge at Encore Las Vegas is set along windows that lookout onto the pool deck and is right off the casino floor. There is a sense of elegance and comfort that brings me back over and over again.

    Before the doors open to the club the lounge at LAVO at the Palazzo is perfect for Las Vegas, The room is large and the seating is comfortable and you also have the option of going out onto the terrace that overlooks the Las Vegas strip. It does get crowded, however, once the doors to the club open, the bar and lounge scene gets so much better as the thinner crowd makes for better conversation and more comfort.
